CFNC President announcement re cancellation MPNFL 2020 Season
27 June 2020
Announcement from President Michael Davis
This morning a MPNFL presidents meeting was held to determine the 2020 season direction.
It was voted that both Football & Netball competitions would not proceed for the 2020 season on the basis of safety and clubs abilities to meet COVID19 protocols and safety concerns for players, volunteers & members.
Chelsea FNC made the decision to withdraw from the season nearly a month ago due to concerns around the health and well being of our players, coaches, volunteers & members taking a safety-first approach from the very first practice match in March.
Pending a player survey our Netball teams may play in a modified version of the season in a non premiership format.
Its fair to say the club and in particular our football players took a lot of heat in the weeks following our withdrawal from social media outlets, but we stood firm as a group and have now been proven correct in our decision-making process.
When we can we will be announcing a social calendar in line with protocols to begin reengaging our community.
I would like to personally thank our board and coaches for their commitment and support, along with overwhelming support of our members and sponsor partners who have contacted the myself and the board throughout this period. It has been a humbling experience leading such a great club through one of the toughest periods in our long and proud history.
We now begin working towards season 2021 with our season 2020 objectives not cancelled but only delayed.
We look forward to seeing you at the club when we can reopen.
President Chelsea FNC
